How do I bypass the pattern unlock/Gmail account identification on my phone?

I have an HTC EVO and initially thought I could just 'update' the password by clicking on 'forgot password' and having a new one created. However according to the forums this new one wouldn't be accepted and this has happened on my phone too. What a stupid system. Thanks Google.

If you have forgotten your phone's password, you will need to enter your Google account information when your phone asks for it. After you've entered the correct information, your phone will unlock to allow you to remove or change the password to something you can remember. If you don't remember your Google account information, go here to try to recover it. If you are unable to recover your Google account information, you will unfortunately need to perform a Factory Reset on your HTC EVO. This will wipe all of your HTC EVO data. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset on your Android phone, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. Once the reset is complete, be sure to write down the lockscreen password you choose so you can refer to it in the future if you forget your password again. In addition, be sure to log your HTC EVO into a Google account to which you know the password so you can enter that in the event that you forget your lockscreen password, as well.
